Mmm… cassoulet is a wonderful dish and this sounds good.
it's hard, sometimes, to be a vegetarian……..
Nam! But I am Muslim. What about one of yr great recipes, — but halal.
Very tasty I'm sure… Yusef would like roast leg of lamb with yogurt and lemon.
Delicious C.O ! Must try it- having eaten from your recipes before will be in for a treat.
Looks wonderful – will have to try it with our own pork and chorizo made by my own fair hand.
